Animals & Monsters

Great combination for the challenge this fortnight at Little Miss Muffet, the challenge is for
Animals but you can also include Monsters

The main image on my card is called Pains from Monster Mash also included is a mixture of images from the Little Miss Muffet Stamps they are Adela & Dida Inventing, Bailey, Autumn Breath, Summer Monkey, and School Turtle … whew.

That’s the beauty of digi stamps you can create your very own collage really quickly without having to mask off the images. I used 5 animal pics plus Monster Pains from various other stamps in the shop and clustered them together. Coloured with TH Distress Inks and used Victorian Velvet for the blended edges.

Don’t forget that if you use one of the Little Miss Muffet Stamps for the challenge then the theme is Anything Goes. Please if you have any spare time … ha haha ha ha haha … I hear you say … then pop along to see my other teamies creations they are utterly butterly gorgeous.

Fairy Breena

Little Miss Muffet new release time … they have 4 new images which are delicious …

FairyLittle Miss

These are all gorgeous – Breena looks so thoughtful and pretty which is why I chose her for my card but Jada is the image for my next … love her 😆

All the other DT’s have amazing work displayed for you to drool over so jump here and take a peek so you don’t miss out.

Quick telling of how the yellow background paper and flower was made.
Poured some PVA glue into a little plastic pot and added yellow mica powder, slathered it onto a piece of card, added a piece of netting and flower (previously a white flower but coloured with the same mica powder). Heated all with a heat gun, inked and distressed the edges with TH Dusty Concord and voilà this is the effect … very very cool indeed. 😎 Added the little white flower after.

Used the same netting and die cut a flower, the other flower embellishment is torn book pages then covered with various glimmer mists and scrunched together.



…… Update on my journey … hopefully I am on the train, going through Wales, making my way to the boat which will sail me across those choppy Irish waters.

Onto the challenge for Digi Doodle Shop which is Autumn this week – and another re-vamped card, used this super cute image Baby Giraffe, put a scarf on him because of all those Autumn winds lol and had a play with my new Tim Holtz die … mmmmm scrummy.


Should be home by 8:00 tonight … can’t wait to see Andrew and of course little Penny Black.


Wings & Things

Little Miss Muffet Challenges & Releases

Short and sweet everyone because I am off home today (4 days late). By the time this is posted … hopefully, because it’s on auto … I should be waiting on the platform at Reading station for my connection to Cardiff, then my onward journey to Ireland.

This is my last weeks project, but because I forgot the leads for my camera it never got posted. This week’s challenge for Little Miss Muffet is Wings & Things so I have revamped by adding butterflies, WAHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOO it works for this week!


Pop back later to see where I am, on my journey home ……


Tag For FSC

Still here in the UK, should have sailed home on Monday but with all those gale force winds I seriously didn’t fancy it so will be sailing home on Thursday instead.

Missed both my DT postings last week for Little Miss Muffet and Digi Doodle Shop Challenges. Can you believe I brought my camera with me but not the computer leads … grrrr.

Borrowed Clare’s camera and managed to take a pic of my Fashionable Stamping Tag which is this fortnights challenge. Made a box for the tag to fit into, got the info from Joanna and the box tutorial is here (found the scoring measurements a bit confusing) but worked it out by the pictures.
